New Mail Basic



Welcome to our Yahoo Basic Mail feedback forum! This is a place for you to help shape the new Yahoo Basic Mail experience. We review the most popular, feasible ideas from this forum to make positive changes to your Yahoo Mail.

Basic Mail provides base functionality like reading and writing messages, but does not include many of the advanced options. To use these features, we recommend upgrading to full-featured version of Yahoo Mail.

  3. I wanted to switch back to the old version because it was easier to add filters/rules for my mails but that feature is all gone.

    I wanted to switch back to the old version because it was easier to add filters/rules for my mails but that feature is all gone. You can't rightclick to add filters/rules so now both versions of Yahoo! mail are useless to me. Please bring back the rightclick to add filters and let us use split screen to read mails.

  4. the spam folder does not warn me when I receive mail.

    Surely this must be a bug ? My old yahoo mail I could see if I received any spam, it would tell me how many without having to open the folder.

    Every week I receive important mail that ends up in the spam folder and now I dont know how many I receive. Fix asap.

  5. Why are you forcing your users doing the beta testing of FAILED coding

    Here's a thought code your "new email" to look and feel the the classic mail I have been using for over 20 years.... ask users to volunteer to test your new code instead of throwing out code that is balatently flawed.....Fail in management...Fail in coding... Fail in testing.... never beta test in the public domain...and you wonder why Yahoo is losing market share

  6. Stop changing! You have achieved nothing but upsetting customers. Awful design

    Stop changing! You have achieved nothing but upsetting customers. Awful design and you constant auto playing of news clips has given me to leave. GMX offers free email service with no adverts, switching out my account.

  10. Why too many things broken, missing, or working incorrectly to list here. How do I get back to the version that worked correctly?

  12. Correo clasico anterior

    Deseo como usuario que se respete mi libertad, mis gustos y preferencias. Que al cambiar a la versión anterior del correo clasico quede como predeterminada y que si es mi voluntad elijir la nueva versión, pueda hacerlo. Pero obligarme a usar una versión no elegida vulnera mi libertad de elección. Gracias

  13. My reply to Yahoo's reply

    I have seen the following reply on a couple of posts now:

    "Hi there,

    Thank you for your feedback. The option to switch back to the previous version can be found in the dropdown menu on the upper right of the screen. Open the dropdown and select “Go to old version” and click “Go”.

    Thanks,
    Mail Support"

    I don't see a button to allow me to respond. So here is my response in a new post:

    That option isn't on my dropdown menu.

  14. Put it back the way it was.

    It was perfectly fine. Why do you insist on changing it and forcing it on everyone? There is a reason why I have Basic. This is now totally screwed up. I didn't ask for this; I don't like this; I certainly don't want this; I hate this. Put it back the way it was!

  17. Correo clasico es mejor

    Que la nueva versión sea optativa, de lo contrario habrá que optar por otros correos y no quiero, pues estaba satisfecho con el correo clasico de yahoo mail.

  18. Please return to the previous Yahoo email format!!!

    There was no need for this new Yahoo format -- which I and many others don't like. Listen to Yahoo long-time users and return to a format that we all got used to using. The SENT doesn't work in the new format. I send an email and it doesn't immediately show under SENT -- unlike with the previous format.

  19. Give me back my numbers, I want to know how many emails are in each folder!

    999 is not helpful and no number at all is not helpful, Tell me exactly how many are in each folder and make everything so it's not ugly as could be! What is wrong with you people? Why can't you leave well enough alone? If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
